As we reach the the final weeks of the NFL season, the playoff picture is finally starting to firm up. Several teams are virtual locks to make the playoffs, but that is not to say there aren't clear improvements that need to be made.
For teams like the New England Patriots, who've looked shaky at times this season, they will need to solidify their weak spots or else risk being exposed and thus eliminated from the playoffs. Especially with the loss of star tight end Rob Gronkowski, the Pats have some shuffling to do to ensure a solid run in the postseason.
